walking in downtown sacramento

Being a soccer wife does have some benefits. Besides witnessing games’ highlights live, every now and then we get the unplanned road trips. So last weekend we went to Sacramento (hence the lack of posts). Surprisingly small town (for the capital of California), it possesses such an irresistible charm that I couldn’t help but snuck out in between the games to just walk the streets and take it all in.

Sacramento’s architecture is a clad of Victorian, Colonial, American Federalist, Greek and all sorts of Classical Revivals. Yum! Needless to say that my whole historical entity was having a blast.

Capitol Building (1861 – 1874)

California Western Life Building (now Citizen Hotel) – 1925

Ruhstaller Building – 1898

Masonic Temple – 1920

Elk Building – 1926

Pioneer Hall – 1868 and Merchant National Bank – 1921
